Indian old / antique silver and smokey quartz necklace. Prayer box. Silver 925
This is a smokey quartz stone necklace with an old/antique Indian pendant.
The pendant is a sealed prayer box that has been made and worn by the tribal gypsy people of Rajasthan in Northern India. It is 50 - 150 years old, and is made of extremely pure silver (99%). I bought it myself in Rajasthan. The stones are natural smokey quartz with a translucent dark brown colour. They have been faceted to catch the light beautifully. All the other beads and the clasp are also extremely pure fine silver (98%).
The pendant is 3 cm across amd 3cm high, including the hoops and the dangles underneath. The necklace is 45cm (17.75") long. I'm happy to adjust the length if needed.
I am the designer of this necklace and I have made it with my own hands. I have been making my living exclusively from designing and making jewellery for 9 years. I travel every year to seek out old and tribal silver from Asia and India along with semi-precious stones. Back at home in Brighton, England, I make these loose pieces up into beautiful and unusal jewellery.
Every item will be send beautifully packaged in a cotton gift bag made especially for me by a women's self help group in India.
